Dug a 1980 red Motobecane out of a barn. My pops used to sell Motobecane bicycles and purchased this for us new in 1981 (it says "6 1980" and "50v C Miles" on the VIN tag).
Question: How do I determine exactly which model I have?
it has a "Moby" decal on the rt side panel ... are all Motosreferred to as Mobys?
The bike is all original but doesn't run yet. My old man says he thinks something is wrong with the magneto unit (no spark). I am going to start at the beginning and work up. The handlebar clamps are missing, so I ordered those. I am sure I will be back with many more questions, as I am not afraid to ask for help and y'all seem to know yer crankshaft from yer carb.
